  • Chuck and Lily are amazing, maybe more? Jenny should lose her virginity to Nate

    Chuck and Lily are amazing, maybe more? A relationship or even an affair between Chuck and Lily should be nice? Jenny still has feelings for Nate and maybe Jenny should lose her virginity to Nate. I was for Blair/Chuck but they need to break up so we can move along and see new pairings because they are getting soft so we need something new. I would like to see more of lily as a strong business woman. We need to give chuck a new love and see what happens. Dan and Vanessa are lame. Vanessa should leave the show because she is irrelevant. Serena and Nate are also not so great. Nate should be with Jenny. I think a Jenny/Nate relationship would be amazing.moreless
  • Solid Episode, but nothing close to Season 1 standard.

    Gossip girl is now mid-way through it's 3rd season. Season 1 was fantastic, great cast, great characters, Great story. But since then i have found that it has really just dropped and has become pretty Un-interesting. I have found that season 3 has surprisingly been better than season 2 in which their are quite a few good episodes here where as season 2 was disappointing until the last 5 episodes. But their have been still a lot of Mediocre dry story lines in season three. Chuck is kind of pissing me off now that he's with Blair, i mean? Can't we have the Chuck from the first Season. Oh no, they're all hardcore now because they've graduated from school. So anyway this episode was about the young 16 year old actress Taylor Momsen who plays Jenny Humphrey Who is still dating the drug dealer Damien, while her father doesn't want her to be with him. She is contemplating weather or not to have sex and lose her Virginity. Everyone is doing the typical ''it should be special your first time, not on top of a bar with your partners best friend watching over you. And in the end she doesn't have Intercourse. So in conclusion i thought that this episode was solid but I think i preferred the Thanksgiving dinner one better. I just hope the writers start writing like they did in the first 2 seasons of the O.C. Still good episode, worth watching.

    Sorry if i soiled stuff above but you shouldn't be looking up reviews on TV.com.moreless
